Now this was an exciting project to work on. I have been a fan of comedy and Ms. Sykes for a while, and to hear that this was coming down the line got me pretty excited. It was to be a simple site, but that didn't matter. I felt like the challenge was to make it the best version of what they wanted, while keeping the user back end as simple and as automated as possible. The client wanted to connect Vimeo and a CMS together so that the power of both platforms could be used. While there are many ready made plugins, the specific needs of this client made it such that some user end customization were needed. Using WordPress to power the CMS and post the videos on the site seemed a no brainier after everything was said and done.

    As of this post, I am proud to say that the site is up and running and performing as needed. I worked with client to modify and come under budget for all their needs.

Epic homes needed an Epic site, under budget of course. The priority of the site was to communicate commitment to the product they were producing. It was very important to them they potential customers know they at they are not an average builder, but a partner in the process. I worked with them to help communicate these wishes along with providing the ability to upload/update the floor plans they provide. Te ease of use of CMS from WordPress met the needs of every thing they wanted.

This looks GREAT guys - thanks so much!

These clients were great. They had an outdated Wix site that needed to be brought up to speed. It was black and hard to read and update. They needed something new, something bright. They were lacking that atmosphere that they thrive, and needed to convey the feelings of "Mission Beach", fun, and summer. The logo was provided, but I felt it was great. It fit them perfectly and gave me the direction I needed to take the rest of the site. Bright and happy colors. Can't go wrong with that, can you?

    This one got under way, after a few problems needed solving. All mostly under budget. I now need to make my way to Mission Beach.

This client needed a site update desperately. They had an outdated site that needed an updated look and feel, along with a major bump in SEO. While I am not the one who they call on to handle the SEO per se, I can give them the help they need with the updated look. I redesigned the current 14 pages to be more user friendly. The customer wanted to simplify the text and make sure people who visit the website know what they do. That was a huge component of the home page, making clear they service they offered.

They wanted to follow 3 guiding principle, Simplicity, Clarity and Functionality & they like a white background. I got to add a bit of abstraction in some of the images, that went along with some of the more complicated ideas they needed to convey.

    This is an example of a site where the client needs it to run on it's own after it is done, with minimal input. I do know this has an impact on SEO, but it seems to work for them.

The staff at Quilling Card presented a unique product that they needed to effectively sell. They needed an easy to use site, mobile friendly and with the ability for commerce. Woocommerce with WordPress was a great fit for these wonderfully creative people. Along with the functionality, the site needed to reflect the ideas and beauty of the wonder product they had, and they came ready to work. I had a great time bringing the visions of the staff to one cohesive site.

The client came to Appnet to have a new site. She wanted something elegant and easy to navigate, on all platforms. Along with ease of use, she also wanted to visually establish trust with the user. This site had an added componant of a branding update. The client felt it was it was time for a branding update, to go along with the new flow of the the site.

This was a fun one. The client was ready to have fun with the process from start to finish. She had already looked at some nicely rendered logos for inspiration and was ready to have something great. The colors and feel was pulled through the whole site, making it one solid project. I also am an animal lover, so it was great to look for powerful shots of pets.

This client had an outdated site, and was not happy with how the CMS currently worked. After having someone carefully design a wonderful logo and brand for them, they decided to take the current site to next level, and also make it easier to use. Going into this, I wanted to carry the branding and colors into the page, to keep it very focused on what the company was about. The personal love of what they produced carred me forward as well, though to be frank, working with such beautiful images of delicious looking food was a bit difficult, because I kept getting hungry.

A lot of the work was done via intermediary, but I quite enjoyed working on this project, and by extension, this company. They had a clear focus and idea to convey, and I can only hope they saw exactly what they wanted.

Guérard Glass

guerard-start

Glass, in its hot, liquid form, can flow & swirl as an eddy of water

Guérard came to blown glass art via the route of his background in philosophy and aesthetics and his practical bent of wanting to create with his hands. At a certain point in life, after considering possibilities
as disparate as hang gliding and building solar homes, the allure of the beauty of glass prevailed. A weekend glass blowing class in Denver seemed like magic and the other possibilities no longer were of interest.

Judson Guérard about Making Blown Glass

As a material, hot glass focuses and sustains my interest in the immediate task of doing, making, while hinting and sometimes pointing in a direction away from the particular task. It suggests a melding of hand and mind into a symbiotic process of doing and becoming blown glass art, in which each sustains or rejuvenates the other to continue the process.

I had worked in various capacity with this client, when she decided her husband needed an updated site. Her current site was in WordPress, using a theme that, to her, was bulky and hard to use. Among other issues, this was a site for an artist. It needed to be more than just an e-commerce tool.

With Sally giving me her wants and needs, and detailing what she did not care for with her current site, I believe I was able to create a very polished site. Displaying the images they worked so hard to shoot, and capture the essence of Judson Guérard's work was paramount. At the same time, keeping the CMS easy to use and light weight was key to the continual maintenance of the site by the client. The branding was part of the way, and I just brought it to life, and incorporated in to the design of the site.

I find that it can be challenging when people approach the same creative problem, especially if both of those people feel they are creative. Luckily that was not much of an issue, because Sally, the husband of the artist, and one herself I believe, was great to work with.

Thanks so much. I feel good about the site.

This is a redesign for a new client. The site was to be built in wordpress so that the client will have a complete content management system for easy of update. A focus on increasing mobile presents was also a factor of this project.

The goal of this updated look was to give the site and branding a professional look to display the quality of the services and products they produce. Having full screen videos and imagery was a must for this client.

I was working with established branding, so I was easily able to update everything, and stay within the budget projected.

Thanks Adam, ...THIS LOOKS AWESOME!
